    Maybe the X3460 on the 1156 socket? DDR3 supported 775 motherboard with a e5450? Even a DDR2 mobo if you get decent RAM (800Mhz+)

    Depends what your budget is, there might be better options outside of the Xeon line of CPU's.

    The absolute best one that is cheap for just gaming? The X5687. But if you're overclocking, then really id go with like the X5675 and OC the piss out of it.

    Oh oops, misread your title. You're excepting socket 1366 lol. My bad.
